It’s chilly out, so maybe photos of Freddie Freeman and his 2-year-old son snuggling with a kitten will warm your heart.
Freeman and Atlanta Braves teammate Charlie Culberson, along with their wives, visited the Best Friends Animal Society pet shelter on Wednesday. This is part of the team’s Season of Giving campaign.
As part of the campaign, Charlie and Sarah Culberson spent Monday at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge serving lunch to cancer patients.
At the shelter, the Culbersons and the Freemans helped clean the Smyrna shelter, 4874 S. Atlanta Road SE., with some of the Braves front office staff.
“We had a great time,” Freeman said in a team video. “ ... They do a lot of good work here.”
When asked to pick his favorite part of the day, he said: “Little kittens, they kind of pull at my heartstrings.” He asked not to tell the dogs at the shelter.
